The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Bassingham Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bassingham Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.806 for Bassingham Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.806

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bassingham Care Centre is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.167

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Dad was in Bassingham Care Centre for his end of life care from September 2017, until December 2017.
The care home manager, deputy manager and care home staff have shown nothing but compassion and high-quality care for my father, right up to the end of December 2017. Dad had deteriorated badly with his Parkinson's/Dementia and all the team were able to meet his needs.

The care home is set in a lovely village of Bassingham and the setting and standards of the gardens and care home are out of this world.
This was Dad's last care home and myself and my mother were happy that Dad was comfortable and highly looked after until the end of his life.

Thank you to the manager/deputy manager and team at Bassingham.
Myself and mum knew Dad was in safe hands. Thank you for looking after him so well right to the end. Room 29 and other rooms in this lovely care home look out onto the beautiful gardens.
Highly recommended care home, relatives of service users must pay a visit to see. 5-star rating.

All the staff understand my husband's needs and his personality. They make him laugh and smile and treat him with a great amount of dignity. All the carers understand he is a choke risk resident and they make sure he only had textured food. They also understand he is tired after lunch and they take him back to bed. The care centre has provided a longer bed to make him more comfortable. When he scratched himself with his fingernail the wound was dealt with immediately and has healed well.

This nursing home provided palliative care for my mother in what turned out to be the last 2 weeks of her life. The staff were always helpful and friendly and provided the nursing care she required to ensure that she was as comfortable and pain-free as possible. Always happy to accommodate our requests and ensured we were kept up to date with progress. Happy to recommend to anybody else in the same sad situation.
